Plot your Ancestors With RootsMapper

If you've been watching the number of FamilySearch Partners grow over the past year, you know that the partner count has hit an impressive level.

One of the favorite partners to help researchers envision the migratory paths of their ancestor is RootsMapper.

Simply log in to your FamilySearch Account using the link on the RootsMapper site and it will query the FamilySearch Tree database for your ancestors records and plot their birth and death location on a world map.

Click on a location to see all of the records associated with that location.

Then click on a dot again to see the information about specific people.

Before you begin, be sure to visit FamilySearch Tree and create enough records to tie you to your closest ancestors in time (probably your grandparents).  Accounts on FamilySearch Tree are free.
